Do we consider the SheevaPlug to be a retro computing experience - Given the age of the SheevaPlug is heading to be 10 years old.

Beautiful cars. Arguably Lee Iacocca's finest project at Ford. In fact the book "Iacocca: an Autobiography" is my favorite non-fiction I've read cover to cover a few times. Beyond the style of the Mustang (originally named after the airplane and not a horse) was the frame of the Falcon and other overstock, making the Mustang inexpensive to produce, and the profits come from the overpriced addons.

To be fair, the Pinto was also his baby ("2,000 pounds and $2,000" was the catch-phrase).

Sheevaplug still looks great to me though :-)

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, I believe we can consider it as a retro.
